What do you think about the Book?

The American Revolution was the major conflict that was happening. At the time of 1776 Thomas Paine concluded that we were able to fight for our independence. We were able to defeat other countries for our independence.

It was a good book to read because you learned about many of the arguments that was going on during the American Revolution. I learned that fighting for our indpendence really wasn't a easy task to accomplish.
